Mourinho and Pochettino always show great mutual respect

Two great managers will do battle at Old Trafford on Sunday, both looking to make up ground on the top 4 spots.

Harry Kane’s absence stunted Spurs’ season in the six weeks he was out, but since he’s been back they look a different side. His ability to find the net is a gift and is an almost impossible skill to coach players. He missed a third of the season through injury and is still just four goals away from Diego Costa’s tally of 11.

It seems as though José Mourinho’s reputation, however, is taking right hooks every week. If he had a table to flip, I’m sure we would have seen him flip it by now. Eric Bailly is in contention for the game on Sunday and United looks more solid with him in the side and should look to get him back in as soon as possible. Zlatan has seen the other side of his goalscoring dry spell and scored again midweek, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan is finally looking worth the money, scoring a sublime goal in the Europa League.

With Mourinho looking like his best days are behind him, and Pochettino’s style of play and youth policy receiving so many plaudits in recent times, could Old Trafford be his home in the near future. The Soccer Sofa thinks it would be a great fit.

United have to get something but Spurs are looking strong. 1-1 draw.
